About me
*** A recent theft of some of my equipment has put me out of commission until further notice. ***




I'm a travel / documentary stock photographer looking to expand into model and portrait work, male or female.

My interests lean more toward the mainstream, commercial end of things. While I'm not opposed to off-kilter concepts nor am I a prude, I'm also not the "edgy" type. I'm far more interested in producing work that stands a good chance of being published somewhere, or at least capturing something you'd be proud to frame and hang on your wall.

I use Photoshop and other image-processing tools with a very light touch. I come from a documentary background, after all, where photographs look like photographs, skin looks like skin and all the colors shown occur in nature. I won't process the skin tone in an image until it looks like plastic or tint the whole thing robin's egg blue.

I also come from the film era, and I work like it. I'm not a "spray and pray" shooter. With film, every flubbed shot cost about thirty cents. Cameras didn't have a delete button. So I've maintained that trusty old film habit of working to get everything correct in camera, and not to rely on post-processing to smooth over the klunkers. So I work a little slower. My IPH (images per hour) count isn't as high as some, but I think the results are worth it.

And, so you know, I still have all that film gear. If nothing but the authentic look of Tri-X or Ilford PanF Plus is what you're after, I can oblige you.

Lastly, I respect people's wishes and limitations. I'll never push you to do something you don't want to do or intentionally make you uncomfortable during a session. I like to be relaxed and comfortable while I work and I enjoy a good two-way dialogue. I want you to feel that way too.
